Hello,
I can understand your anxiety.
Dose - Regular-strength (325 mg) acetaminophen: Two tablets every four to six hours as needed, not to exceed 12 tablets in 24 hours.
Alleve - 1 tablet (220 mg) by oral route every 8 hours.
Look for side effects like abdominal Pain with Cramps, Body Fluid Retention, Constipation, Dizziness, Headache, Heartburn, Nausea, Skin Rash, Tinnitus, Urticaria.
He has already taken the maximum allowed. Please do not give him any more tablets now. He needs to have adequate fluid and balanced diet. Please do not worry, he will be fine soon. God bless

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
